Kevin Durant: ‘If Charles Barkley said it, it must be true’


Kevin Durant was made available to the media for the first time since his introductory press conference in Oakland and fielded a variety of questions from the national media.

True to character, Durant didn’t bite on any of the bait he was offered about Russell Westbrook, the reaction from Thunder fans or the idea of playing for the Lakers. He did have an interesting response to a question about critical comments from former players Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller:

In case you need a refresher, Barkley called the Warriors ‘overrated’ and said Durant was trying to ‘cheat’ his way to a title. “Kevin Durant traded a sacred legacy for cheap jewelry,” Reggie Miller said.
